Fifth International Conference on

Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD 2020)

June 29 – July 5, 2020, Paris, France




All deadlines are midnight anywhere-on-earth (AoE); late submissions will not be considered.

Abstract: February 6, 2020

Submission: February 9, 2020

Rebuttal: March 27-29, 2020

Notification: April 13, 2020

Final version: April 27, 2020

FSCD (http://fscdconference.org/ ) covers all aspects of formal structures for

computation and deduction from theoretical foundations to applications.

Building on two communities, RTA (Rewriting Techniques and Applications) and

TLCA (Typed Lambda Calculi and Applications), FSCD embraces their core

topics and broadens their scope to closely related areas in logics, models

of computation, semantics and verification in new challenging areas. The suggested,

but not exclusive, list of topics for submission is:

1. Calculi: Rewriting systems (string, term, higher-order, graph, conditional, modulo,

infinitary, etc.); Lambda calculus; Logics (first-order, higher-order, equational,

modal, linear, classical, constructive, etc.); Proof theory (natural deduction,

sequent calculus, proof nets, etc.); Type theory and logical frameworks; Homotopy

type theory; Quantum calculi.

2. Methods in Computation and Deduction: Type systems (polymorphism, dependent,

recursive, intersection, session, etc.); Induction, coinduction; Matching, unification,

completion, orderings; Strategies (normalization, completeness, etc.); Tree automata;

Model building and model checking; Proof search and theorem proving; Constraint

solving and decision procedures.

3. Semantics: Operational semantics and abstract machines; Game Semantics and

applications; Domain theory and categorical models; Quantitative models (timing,

probabilities, etc.); Quantum computation and emerging models in computation.

4. Algorithmic Analysis and Transformations of Formal Systems: Type Inference

and type checking; Abstract Interpretation; Complexity analysis and implicit

computational complexity; Checking termination, confluence, derivational complexity

and related properties; Symbolic computation.

5. Tools and Applications: Programming and proof environments; Verification tools;

Proof assistants and interactive theorem provers; Applications in industry; Applications

of formal systems in other sciences.

6. Semantics and Verification in new challenging areas: Certification; Security; Blockchain

protocols; Data Bases; Deep learning and machine learning algorithms; Planning.



The proceedings will be published as an electronic volume in the Leibniz International

Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) of Schloss Dagstuhl. All LIPIcs proceedings are open access.



Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of

Logical Methods in Computer Science.



Submissions can be made in two categories. Regular research papers are limited to 15 pages

(including references, with the possibility to add an annex for technical details, e.g. proofs)

and must present original research which is unpublished and not submitted elsewhere.

System descriptions are limited to 15 pages (including references) and must present new software

tools in which FSCD topics play an important role, or significantly new versions of such tools.

Complete instructions on submitting a paper can be found on the conference web site.



The program committee will select a paper in which at least one author is a junior researcher, i.e.

either a student or whose PhD award date is less than three years from the first day of the

meeting. Other authors should declare to the PC Chair that at least 50% of contribution is made

by the junior researcher(s).
